Have you installed fakesmc in S/L/E after lion installation? if you have another partition with Snow leopard you can install your kexts from there in that dir, remember to change folder and kext permission of the new ones before to reboot. cheers

lion doesn't start because it doesn't load/find fakesmc, there are a few comands that you have to type in order to add fakesmc.kext in S/L/E from your bootloader (XPC or #####), than you should ready to go, although i don't remember the exact procedure now, try to find it in this or another lion related installation threads... cheers

Hi, everyone!
I tried this method, but I'm getting a KP because of NullCPUPowerManagement.kext.
How do I fix this?
Thanks in advance.

Hi everybody,

Has anyone managed to make the wifi works with Lion ?
Lion GMworks flawlessly on my ASUS P5W DH, but i can't use the realtek RTL8187(L) driver as it does not support 64 bits mode.
I've tried Lnx2Mac's Realtek RTL81xx driver without success.
link to his blog : http://lnx2mac.blogs...osx-driver.html

Does a solution to this problem exist, or will we have to wait an upgrade of the drivers on realtek's site ?

Cheers !

I have the RTL8111E (Realtek gigabit PHY), and the lnx2mac kext works just fine (in both Snow and Lion). For wireless, I have three options - original SL driver for Tenda W311U (came with my USB wireless stick of that model), or either of the generic Ralink kext/utility combos.

What I wouldn't mind is finding a dual-band N stick that works with Lion (though I have a single-band N router *now*, I don't assume it will be around another year).
